Our work is to conserve and restore the natural and cultural resources of the Chesapeake Bay watershed for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
"Chesapeake Conservancy is a small but mighty nonprofit that has proven anyone with a big idea can change the world. Their approach to data-driven conservation in the Chesapeake has caught global attention as their model has the potential to be replicated worldwide."
Lucas N. Joppa, Chief Environmental Officer | Microsoft
"The Hamer Foundation supports the clean-up and restoration of the Chesapeake watershed. We are particularly interested in the Chesapeake Conservancy's use on this project of current technology being developed to identify high priority areas for remediation."
Patrick Morse, Trustee | The Hamer Foundation
"The Helena Foundation supports the Chesapeake Conservancy, because it brings to a focus on major land conservation projects the combined interests and resources of federal, state, county, and city governments, as well as those of individuals and organizations. More generally, it actively develops Geographical Information Systems which make available technological tools and techniques, not only to the Conservancy, but also to restoration professionals throughout the United States."
James and Sylvia Earl, President and Vice President | the Helena Foundation
